Steenson stars for Exeter

Fly-half Gareth Steenson booted Premiership newcomers Exeter Chiefs to their second home victory of the campaign against Newcastle Falcons at Sandy Park on Saturday.

The Falcons scored two tries to the Chiefs' one but it was Steenson's five penalties - along with one conversion - which made the difference as the hosts clinched a 22-17 victory.

Charlie Amesbury and Rob Vickerman were the try-scorers for Newcastle, while Tom Johnson touched down for the hosts.
